Senate Bill No. 103 provided for the establishment of a “State school west of the 98th meridian and north of the 29th parallel,” thereby setting the ground work for the creation of Texas Technological School. Among the purposes of the school was to provide a “co-educational college giving thorough instruction in technology and textile engineering from which a student may reach the highest degree of education.” Texas Technological College opened it doors officially in the fall of 1925. From 1959-69, debates were held over what name should replace Texas Technological College. The State Legislature, on Sept. 1, 1969, formally approved the Board of Directors' suggestion to rename the college Texas Tech University.
